The Only Way

To the memory of Jacques Roumain
By Paul Laraque

image

you tell me freedom
I see cooperatives and plows
factories and union workers
running water in the fields
the streets for the people
schools for our children

I see a city reaching out to a village
an arm naked as a face
one by one
countrysides are lighting up
creating a necklace of light
in the country Jean-Jacques has given us

the Pont-Rouge leads to Peralte's cross
the Party takes on the bloody heritage
Haiti is urging our age in the hard fight
o my old enemies
the seeds from your days are numbered
our just demands are growing like flower spikes

I salute you Mayakovsky
my song was but one cry
if a woman's heart is lightened
the spirit will shatter mystery's chains
her eyes are the color of wheat
her flesh summer's heat

I've found love again without any vertigo
it soars tall like a stem
ripping shadows that assail us
when the sun of desire shines at last
my name gushes from your depths
as happiness can keep the windows closed

I tell you freedom
and it's a word of peace
it's a word like tractor dam fertilizer
I'm taking you by the hand to the sources of life
here are the people the masses assembled
for a harvest of morning dew
